may be, be will if nominated and elected
be a thorn in the side of those, who may

As a priest of the Catholic Church; I
say to you from this pulpit that the pre
sent condition of the poor in the United
States cannot go on. The Catholic
Church in these United States must
lead for the emancipation of the people
from the present social and economic
slavery; the Church must Lead as ths
emancipator of ttie working ( lasses, and
the States, and the United States,, its
Senate and its Congress must make laws
to protect the people's rights and abro
gate the laws that bave been made by
briber' in the interests of fraud. Rev.
Father Ducey, of St, Leo's Catholic
Church, New York.
Effort of Hunger.
Hungfy people think less about liberty
th:n ahout crne thing to put into their
stomachs. Hungry people will vote for
food rather than for frewCom. Hungry
men cannot be depended on to fight for
their risrhts. A people reduced to want
and hunger are already enslaved. A
hungry people never yet achieved liberty
The stomach is not the seat of patriots

In recent magazines Carroll D. Wright
and W. T. Harris return to the bygone
subject, whether the rich are growing
richer and the poor poorer. The pro
gressive economic class long since ceased
to trouble itself about that, lhe rich are
enormously rich, the poor are deplora
bly poor, and these between are waste
fully overstrained. That is the whole
modern economic question, and statis

One of Two WaYs.
The bladder was created for one pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for the urine,
and as such it is not liable to any form
of disease except by one of two ways.
The first way is from imperfect aotion of
the kidneys. The second way is from
careless local treatment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy kid
neys is the chief cause of bladder troub
les. So tbe womb, like the bladder, was
created for one purpos, and if not doctor
ed too much is not liable to weakness or
disease, except in rare cases, It is situa
ted back of and very close to the bladdoj
therefore any pain, disease ot inconveni
ence manifested in the kidneys, lock,
bladder or urinary passage is often, by
mistake, attributed to female weakness
or womb trouble of some sort. The error
is easily made and may be as easily avoid
ed. To find out correctly, set your urine
aside for twenty four hours; a sediment
or settling indicates kidney or bladder
trouble. The mild and theextraordinary
effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, and bladder remedy is soon
realized. If you peed a medicine you
should have the best. At druggists fifty
cents and ons dollar. You runy have a
sample bottle ad pamphlet, both sent

THE FARMERS OVERTHREW
The Hartley I$oinlsmu Verdict
Is Heaping WLut AVas Sowed
by Corupt Judges.
The era of public corruption in this
slate seems to have culminated in the
virdict for the defendants in the case
against Hartley's bondsmen. The first
great impulse given to it was the decis
ion of the supreme court in the impeach
ment cases, of which Judge Maxwell said
in his dissenting opinion, "I fear that the
result, if adhered to will open the door,
to the grossest fraud in the public insti
t at ions of the state."
When the impreached state officers
were exonerated, when all the asylum
and penitentiary thieves were set at lib
erty, when the fake cases were brought
in the supreme court to enable Bartley
to steal the school fund, when public
corruption ran not in every institution
in the state, when it was all upheld, ex.
cused or defended by all republican press,
with the State Journal leading them on,
then it was that the conscience was sear
ed as with a hot iron and men forgot hon
or and their duties as citizens, and (tie
man who got hold of the greatest amount
of public funds was the greatest republi
It is just as true to-day as it was 1, BOO
years ago, that whatsoever a roan saw.

The corruption of public men ha de
moralized society. It lias had an effect
upon the churches, and they no longer
require the high standard of morals in
tbe laity that years ago was the rule In
every denomination. It has permeated
business circles until dishonesty lias more
nearly become the rule than the excep
tion. It has perverted the courts, und at
last the juries, so that this mainstay of

Some Plain Facts.
Grjve errors, injustice, wrongs of
greater or less degree, arise from lack;
of knowledge of the truth, and more
frequently from deception.
The most infamous case on record
of deception and injustice is the at.
tempt to demonetize silver as a money
of final redemption in tlie United
There is no learned judge, skilled
lawyer, or court of justice that is
capable of reconciling the effort with
the constitutional laws that goverq
the issue of money in this country.
The people have been deceived,
officials in power, chosen to adminis
ter justice under the laws, have
ignored their sworn duty, and given
aid to the scheme that has paralyzed
industry, reduced property values
one-half, and beggared millions.
There is no authority of law, either
specific or by inference, by which
gold alone is made the only money
with which to discharge debts, either
public or private. The effort to
make it so is unconstitutional and a
Plain and ample information, facts,
and truth, concerning this almost, suc
cessful scheme to corner the wealth
of the people, is now being printed,
in the Cincinnati Enquirer, a news
paper which the combined power of
money has failed to muzzle or buy.
The Weekly Enquirer is only 75c.
a year. The address is
4 Enquirer Company, Cincinnati, Ol
als republican courts, presided over by
partisan judges, are more to blame than
any other one set of men. If. during
the last ten years, judges had held public
ofllcials to a strict accountability, such a
verdict as was rendered by the jury in tl
case of Hartleys bondsmen would have
been an impossibility.
If the great common people, residing
for the most part on tbe farms, had not
preserved their honor; if they had lee
seduced from tbe path of rectitude, as
was the press, the courts and, to a degree
tlie pulpits of tbe state, the whole com
monwealth would have been ruined. It
was when tbe cities, the professions and
the churches failed to maintain right
eousness, that the agricultural popula
tion came to the rescue and drove th
robbers from oltice and installed a gov
ernment of the people. Plain and poor
men they installed in olllce, but they
have given to us an honest government,
economically administered. ,
Tbe few places in the state where tha
Rep'jbl cwis ir still in pjwer are hat
Iwtlsof corruption, but Lincoln and On
ha are no fouler now than was the a tat
bouse when republicans ruled there.
Hold up your heads, ye toiler of
Nebraska farms. It is to you that be
longs the glory of having "brought this
state out from no era of corruption and
started lier anew on the road to honor
and prosperity. When you send jour
uaodidate to the While House the sga of
corruption will end there, :
